To have integrity means you’re honest. It means you have honor. It means you even do the right thing when no one is looking. Integrity is you do not lie or steal even for your own benefit. You’re faithful and true to be kind to others or easy to trust.
To do something you don’t want to do, even to just help your friend or to be kind. That is what integrity is.
By Mekenley Altic
Integrity means to be honest and to trust. An example of integrity is a teacher, a judge, a pastor and a counselor. All of these people are honest and trustworthy.
Everybody can have integrity if they just try. If nobody lied and everyone was honest, then everyone would have integrity. Remember, don’t lie and be honest, and this will be you.
Integrity means to be honest. It’s like Zack broke a glass cup, and he says it was he who broke it. That’s honesty.
You can be honest about almost everything. Like if you hit your brother and you say it was the other brother, that was blaming them, and that’s not honest.
If honesty did not exist, then there would be a lot of wars. That’s what it means.

To show integrity is to be completely honest. For example if someone were to ask you, “Did you do your homework?” and you didn’t do it and had a reason you didn’t have it and said, “No, I didn’t do my homework, but I will do it when I get home,” and that was the truth, then you were showing integrity because it was the complete truth.
Or if you lie about it like, “No, I didn’t, but I will do it at home,” and did not do it at home, you were not showing integrity because you did not tell the complete truth.
Basically to show integrity, all you have to do is tell the complete truth. That is how you show integrity.
